What is your most memorable wedding?
This is a tough question! There are so many, and all for different reasons! Apart from my own wedding (!) it has to be my most recent client who got married in Mayo, Ireland. She decided to go with an Art Deco theme and looked incredible. The venue and location was breath taking too - it was such a magical day!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
What about your business are you most proud of?
I received a lovely email from a client a couple of years ago and what she said has always stayed with me. She was painfully shy and thanked me for helping her find her inner confidence on her wedding day – this made me feel proud.
I'm fortunate that a lot of my work comes through recommendation too - that's something else I'm very thankful and proud of.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
The day will go by so quickly - always remain present and enjoy every single moment.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
A bride put together a hamper for the ladies and left it in the rest room for female guests – it had 'everything a girl could wish for' in it and after a long day drinking and dancing it was appreciated by everyone! The basket had everything in it; flip flops, hair spray, tooth brushes, tooth paste, perfume, aspirin and Berocca ... the list goes on! I thought it was such a good idea!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
After an initial email, I arrange either a make-up trial or meet to discuss everything in detail.
What do you love most about your job?
It's a real honour to be part of such a special day and trusted to help a bride not just look, but also feel her absolute best.
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
Switch up lipsticks for a separate day and night look - for example a beautiful rose pink for the daytime and a gorgeous deep red for the evening. Beautiful!
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
We run through everything before the big day. We also have fun!
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
Skin primer is essential before applying foundation.
Once make-up is done a spritz of fixing spray will keep everything in place!
